My Dell M17x laptop is randomly shutting off. Usually during while trying to boot windows but sometimes before and sometimes even after windows loads. This happens almost every time I turn it on.

I spilled coke on the computer and it would not turn on at all. So I replaced the motherboard and it finally came on, it just shuts off.

I have M17x (either r1 or r2) 4gb X 2 Ram sticks, 320gb hdd, and 2 video cards.

Hello, could you describe more about your problem? it quite confused about what you telling :whistle:

Does your problem started when you spilled coke on your computer (does it Laptop?) and you get replaced your Mainboard and it will shuts off after you turn on that laptop?
If that was your problem, could you tell who that replaced that Mainboard? if that was from Dell please bring it again to Dell as maybe it was still on warranty and if you try to fix it with yourself it will broke your laptop warranty.

And I will follow  :whistle:
